As regards music with this particular novel, I have (like with GW) compiled kind of a playlist that I would often listen to while writing--the various songs just remind me of aspects of the characters and the sort of thoughts I was having as I made them. I'll get around to posting that one of these days (nearer the actual release).

Cheers

Damn! the link does not work! (youtube is giving me no love, saying "The video is no longer available"; man, that youtube was way better back in its pre-Spellplague days... )

I'm going tonight at 10pm... can't wait. I read some flick/critics sites, and rumor has it that Heath Ledger may be nominated for an Oscar for his take on the Joker. "Every time he [Heath Ledger] is on screen, you can't take your eyes off him. He makes previous jokers (including Nicholson) literally look like clowns."

Hehe... I'm glad to see other Garbage fans here at Candlekeep.

As it happens, Shirley Manson's stylings often come to mind when I'm considering the portrayal of the Sharessin in my Realms campaign.

As for vampire-ish robot-like constructs... any chance Downshadow will reveal one or two stored away in some forgotten cache of Undermountain, Erik?

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Same here Kuje, same here... still got the pink "G" album...

Garbage was the first band, IMO, to master the "sound wall" music type.

God bless them.

Long live Garbage!

Heh. I've actually got a signed copy from their first tour here. It's considered quite rare now, from what I've been told.

...

And Kuje, if it's their "Greatest Hits" compilation [from '07 as I recall], you may be able to save yourself a few dollars by purchasing the two new songs released through iTunes -- the other tracks are from previous CDs. That is unless, like me, you'd purchase the CD anyway because you're "that" type of fan.

...

BTW Erik, and to get slightly back on topic, I remember now that I never did post that playlist for Twilight that I promised last year. Do you mind if I include it on your blog?

Wow! you lucky, lucky man!

You must have followed them during the early 1994-1995 shows then... I remember discovering them then, back when I was in military college. Let's just say Garbage was a great release after a day of forced marching led by an overzealous cadet wing commander...

Ah. Though seriously, feel free to talk about Garbage as much as you like--or any other bands that take your fancy. Music is important to my writing process, so it's all good. Recommendations are always appreciated.

My favorite bands are either Irish, Japanese, or play goofy, off-the-wall stuff. Do you really want those kinds of recommendations?

I don't know anyone whose musical taste even comes close to coinciding with mine... Heck, I don't even know all that many people that like some of my favorites!

Well if you like Irish, I put the Corrs in my top 5 favs.
Their version of When the Stars Go Blue, is brilliant.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QG4HApUXoQ

Though their tone would be hard pressed to fit into a de Bie Soundtrack!!

I myself am mainly fond of such bands as Stone Sour, A Perfect Circle, and Disturbed. But I listen to a lot of other stuff from all different genres.

Easy.

I do like the Corrs, and have all their albums (including both versions of Talk On Corners, and the Japanese release of Andrea Corr's album, which had an extra track). They're not quite a favorite, though. Maybe a second favorite.

Since Erik did ask, and says he does different genres... My personal faves, in no particular order:

Flogging Molly
Gaelic Storm
B'z
TM Revolution
The Presidents of the United States of America
Weird Al Yankovic

A Perfect Circle is pretty darn good, but for Me always feel short of what Maynard did with Tool on Undertow. That album is easliy an all time fave and seems to fit your writing.

Heh. I won't even go into the kinds of classical music and experimental musical types that I like. They're actually quite diverse, and most people not already familiar with the genre usually won't have any idea what I'm talking about.

As for actual bands though... my tastes don't vary too much, usually focusing on the symphonic metal-stylings [with heavy classical influences] of one or two bands from Finland and the Netherlands.

Well, I've listened to a lot of music from three Irish or Irish/American groups. The Corrs is more of a pop group with Irish flavor, and some traditional stuff. Their first album (Forgiven, Not Forgotten) was their best, I think.

Gaelic Storm is also kind of a pop group, but with a lot more Irish flavor. They do more of the traditional Irish stuff, too, and at least a couple of the songs are entirely in Irish. Just about everything of theirs is fun and upbeat. Their new album (What's the Rumpus?) is pretty good, but I also really enjoyed the third, fourth, and fifth albums (Tree, Special Reserve, and How Are We Getting Home?).

Gaelic Storm got a huge boost their popularity by appearing in a little movie about a big sinking boat. They were the band in the steerage section, doing the fun Irish stuff when the male lead took the female lead to that part of the boat. (Note: I've only seen two parts of that movie, despite -- and because of -- its rampant popularity. I saw the bit I mentioned, and when the guy is painting the pic of the girl and she's nekkid.)

Flogging Molly is Irish punk -- but they're light enough on the punk that I, someone who doesn't do punk music, still finds them quite enjoyable. My fave albums by them are their first two (Swagger and Drunken Lullabies).

I also enjoyed seeing them in concert. The first opening band was just loud, and that was all that could be said for them. The next opening band, the Scotch Greens, does music that's kind of a mix between rockabilly and punk. And then there was Flogging Molly themselves... Another highlight of the show was the fact that right next to my girlfriend and I were two attractive college girls that couldn't stop groping each other and making out. Hey, I'm a guy!

... And though I found that quite entertaining, I did quite well: by her own admission, my girlfriend never saw me paying those two girls all that that much attention. Needless to say, I was indeed very much enjoying their sideshow.

Elaine once mentioned Enter the Haggis. I love that name, but the music just isn't fun for me. I've given the Dropkick Murphies a couple of tries, too. They are a popular group, but their music was also not really to my liking.

I like the suggestions on the Irish Rock/Pop. I'm a Flogging Molly Fan, so y'know . . . .

Noted agreement on Tool, Sage--I like both APC and Tool, though I kinda prefer APC; I find their music smoother and more satisfying. Just a slight variation in taste, like--say--the difference between Glenlivet and Havana Club. Both equally enjoyable after their own fashions.

(Not that I'd have anything Cuban on American soil, mind! )

LOL, who doesn't like Weird Al Yankovic?

Actually, a lot of people think he does nothing but parodies, and don't pay any attention to him. Me, I've got all of his actual albums (not the compilations, though), the DVD with all the videos, I watched the Weird Al show when it was on, and I've seen him in concert 3 times.

An odd parallel between Weird Al and Flogging Molly that I noted when I saw the latter in concert: both use accordians.
